    There are 13 debates scheduled before the Republican primary. Cain will not be elected. I wouldn't bother/worry about the 999 plan. It is DOA.

    I agree with that....but theres democrats foaming at the mouth for Cain to win...I believe the only one that can beat Obama is Romney....all this ooohhrahhh about the gop candidates is strictly for 50% or less of GOP voters...which represent a very small piece of the population

    Being rather well off myself, 35% to 39% is not "Afflicting the comfortable".

    I feel the next election will have less to do with the quality of the opponent and more to do with the state of the country.

    In my opinion, Obama will release oil reserves, release more money from the fed, promote the expansion of welfare programs in the next 12 months in order to gain popular press and a optimistic country view for reelection.

    You are confused as usual. The 'filthy rich" pay 35% on salary and 15% on investment income...
    ah, so short-term & long-term investments are taxed at the same rate huh?

    NOw those who follow these arguments know you aren't being very honest Thunder. You have read several posts of mine where I have noted short term capital gains are taxed at the same rate as earned income while long term capital gains-where risk and inflation play a role, are taxed at a lower rate for everyone

    so rather than try to divert the thread with stuff you know to be a lie why not attempt to make a valid point?

    why are long-term investments taxed at 15%...even for millionaries and billionaires??

    to compensate them for the risk they chose to take???

    to make sure they are not taxed twice, even though lots of money used to invest is NOT already taxed?

    edit- or is it to encourage investment in American companies, even though I'm sure the IRS doesn't make sure that you have actually invested in American stocks.

    that is a really stupid question. tax treatment of specific types of income is based on the nature of the income not who receives it
